Center for Social Concern
Center for Social Concern
The Center for Social Concern is an office within the Homewood Student Affairs division of Johns Hopkins that is dedicated to volunteerism and community engagement. The Center emphasizes the value of service with others. Volunteers and community members enter into an educational process where both benefit from the interaction, and reciprocal learning is the common ground for all of our initiatives. Our programs and efforts are striving to create a “better community” in and around the Johns Hopkins campus. Read more below about how to get involved.
